    Nu-Hoof Maximizer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! My horses both eat it and it's got the key ingredients they need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE it. My mare has been on this for awhile and her feet look amazing! the only problem is that she wont eat it. But, she hasn't eaten any supplements that are in powder form anyways so I cant really blame this product. Its great and I will always keep my mare on this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! Found this product at my local feed store a couple years ago , and gave it a try on my then 23 year old mare with a bad quarter crack. I have owned her since she was 3 and have fought weak hooves her whole life! My farrier had aggressively routered out the crack and I was concerned it would never heal...after the full hoof grew out (with the help of screwed on plates) we are all pretty amazed at the difference. For once in her life, no cracks, no chipping, and her coat looks great too. I was very excited to see it offered by Smartpak along with the Finish Line HA product I use; I qualify for free shipping which makes it comparable in pricing to bulk when you factor in your time especially! Now we never run out!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time Tells The Truth! A veterinarian at UGA Vet school who specializes in (equine) leg and hoof problems recommended this product to me over 2 years ago. I had a young Percheron/Paint cross with soft, splayed, and cracking hooves due to a combination of genetics and poor care from the previous owner. My farrier had screwed a metal band across one large crack to stabilize her hoof. The UGA vet said of all the horses he's treated, only the ones brought to him that he put on Nu-Hoof Maximizer, (or already had been on it for a short time) had shown significant improvement over a period of time. It was the only hoof supplement that seemed to really grow, heal and toughen the hoof equally well. My mare is now about to graduate to 1st level dressage and her feet are solid and still improving. I'll continue to keep her on this supplement , probably for the rest of her life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I did a lot of research before ordering this supplement. We do not feed many supplements at our farm and have found most supplements to be a huge waste of money. However, we had a few horses with hoof problems so I thought I would try a supplement. It took a few weeks but we can see an improvement in their hooves. It also did take a few feeds before the horses would clean the supplement completely out of their bowls, but they both happily eat it now- no problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product for the price I've used this on my problem child Kirby before with good results so I decided to go back to it. All my horses are barefoot so it's especially important to me that their feet are strong. I've tried some other more expensive hoof supplements and honestly didn't see where they were worth the extra money so I went back to this.
    Date published: 2012-04-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nu- Hoof My Farrier recommended this product to me. My horse kept losing shoes. It was very frustrating because he would no sooner put one back on then another would come off. Since starting my horse on NU-Hoof she hasn't thrown a single shoe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nu-Hoof It didn't take long to notice the difference in quality of new hoof growth. I will never switch products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price My horse has bad feet. I had him on the Ultra Smarthoof and then the Glanzen 3 and also on the Smartpak Senior. I own five horses, with all five on at least some supplement, so this was getting expensive and I needed to cut down. I went to the Nu-Hoof Maximizer after comparing it to other brands and decided it would be the best thing to do for the money. My horse has been on it three months now, and his feet have remained in the terrific shape they were in when on the Glanzen 3. If you need a hoof supplement that's more economical, I believe in this one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Horses wouldn't eat it Loved the formula/ingredients - powder form - my horses ate around it and left the powder. Only one to actually ingest was the pony who doesn't need it! Wish it were pellet form!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Think this is working! I can't see what is inside my mare's hooves, but the outside is perfect, xrays look good, and I am able to ride her like a normal horse again - after 2 yrs post surgical laminitis, which almost ended our times together. Of course, all other feed considerations/activities suited to this mare are very important - but this supplement seems to be a big factor. Farrier says, "Looks Great!".

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from wont buy this again very nasty smelling stuff,my horse will not touch this and wont even drink out of a water bucket that he dropped some of this supplement in.would not recommend this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I am giving my two-year-old, Smokey, this product to improve his hoof structure as I begin his training, as he has small feet. I have used Nu-Hoof before and know it is a high-quality product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from My horse wouldn't eat it. I liked the ingredients but my horse wouldn't eat it even if I tried to get it to stick to his grain with oil. I would try it again if they came out with a pellet.
    Date published: 2011-04-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laminitis survivor in top shape! This is the product I selected, after much research, and I have found it to be extremely palatable to my mare. Her post surgical laminitis is under control, with diet emphasis, and I look to Nu-Hoof Maximizer to give her feet the extra care they need now.
    Date published: 2011-03-28
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous product, ok in taste... This is a really great product! The only thing that I would change is that they came out with a pelleted form. My horse really does not like the granuals, so I have to make sure that he eats them. But this product has REALLY helped my horses feet, and it is a GREAT price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great supplement! I recent rescued a 4 year old tb mare of the track with some serious hoof issues. She had deep cracks and little new growth. After just a month on this product my farrier noticed a big difference. I was able to switch her from glue on to nail in shoes and her new hoof growth is crack free! I have used select's nu-flex product with my older tb... their suppliments are a great quality for the money.
    Date published: 2010-12-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FABULOUS! I have been feeding this product to my horse for a month & I can already see a difference. Instead of his hooves becoming all cracked when he is close to shoeing, they look like a normal horses hooves! I am SO happy!!
    Date published: 2010-09-13
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awful for finicky eaters I had a constant battle getting my horse to eat this supplement. It is a crumble and it doesn't mix into the feed well. I did have my horse on strategy, but had to switch to a sweet feed because I couldn't get him to eat it any other way. He still will spit some of his feed out when he eats the parts that the Nu Hoof is stuck to. The supplement smells awful as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for years & will continue permanently Our horse had very thin hoof wall and brittle hoofs. It was very hard to take her on trail rides without her suffering. We finally tried Nu Hoof Maximizer a little over 2 years ago..Within months her hoof wall got thicker and stronger. She now does not have sore feet after being ridden. We take her on quite a few trail rides now and we do not need to use shoes at all. It is amazing to see her run and jump like a pony again. She is currently 16 years old and going strong. We mix the powder in applesauce to make it more tasty for her. We will continue to use Nu Hoof Maximizer permanently.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product I havn't been useing this for very long so I'm not excatly sure on the results yet. However the taste and texture of this product does not seem to bother my horse.. He eats it.
    Date published: 2010-04-11
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good ingredients I like this product because it has good levels of things that are important for hoof health and it doesn't have corn, which my horse is allergic to. It smells kinda funny, but my horse doesn't seem to mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this product! I've already reviewed this product but I can repeat myself. I can't recommend it enough! I have a 9 year old paint who had horrible feet for most of his life. I was told by a number of farriers that I'd just have to deal with it. Then he went seriously lame. I had the vet out to find a cause but he couldn't find anything to point to as a cause. I then got a second opinion. After asking a few questions he asked the most important ones. Do you shoe him in winter and is he lame in the winter? The answer to both was no. We pulled his shoes that night and he was noticeably better the next day. The problem with him being barefoot was his feet chipped and cracked and he was ouchy on gravel or rocky ground. With the use of this product and a good barefoot hoofcare specialist he has been sound for the last 4 years. When I ride him on rough trails I do use boots on his front. So far so good. As a commercial used to say, "Try it you'll like it!"
    Date published: 2010-01-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Positive results I tried Nu-Hoof & the results were amazing! His hoof walls were so flakey and brittle & his sole was deformed & degenerating. He would loose his shoes in 3-4 wks. Now his shoes stay on 6-7 wks. with no problem. I used a different product as maintenance, but found ourselves back to sq. one. He was able to go barefoot last winter with no problem. We're hoping for a possible barefoot summer. No cutting corners again. Thank you Nu-Hoof!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This really works! My 9 yo Paint gelding has been on this for over a year and his feet have never looked better. For years I was told that I'd just have to deal with the fact that my horse had bad feet. We tried shoes, pads, anything the farrier suggested with horrible results. Finally he became so lame he refused to walk to get to the hay in the pasture. At that point I figured I had nothing to lose so I tried a barefoot specialist to trim his feet and started him on Nu-Hoof Maximizer. He's been barefoot and sound for almost 2 years now! I do use boots on his front when we trail ride on rough terrain but otherwise his feet are in their natural state. I recommend this to everyone. My daughter is now using it on her off the track TB with good results. Here's another horse we were told couldn't go barefoot but he is and he's doing great.

    Date published: 2010-01-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product! I started using this product on a tender footed mare. After 2 weeks there was improvement in her movement. I chose this item due to the high biotin content and I have had good luck w/ other Select the Best products. The only drawback is I have to mix this supplement w/ a little bit of sweet feed to make sure my mare eats all of it.
    Date published: 2009-12-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I like this hoof supplement because it has enough of the biotin and other minerals in it to really make it work. Most other products lack enough of the biotin. My vet told me that you need at least 28 mg of biotin for the product to have any effect or else you are wasting your money. I have noticed a distinct improvement in the hooves of every horse I put on this product within 2-3 months. Also because it is a crumble it is very palatable and they all eat it. I wish the price was a bit lower, but I also think it is a good value. Even my farrier has commented on the improvement in my current TB's feet over the past 3 months. When I got him his walls were thin and shelly and we couldn't keep shoes on him even with quarter clips. Now he never looses his shoes and his walls have improved tremendously.
